Ok, I have some bad news...

Without going into great detail (due to details that aren't exactly legal), I've decided to pull the whole AvaServer offline. So that means the DoD server, stats, svn, as well as a bunch of stuff not directly connected to AvaMods itself will be down. This website and the majority of the AvaMods affiliated sites will not be affected. While its not exactly a big deal for the DoD server to be down, it still sucks. I could possibly have left everything up but it would have required an IP change as well as a dramatic decrease in bandwidth. I decided that wasn't really an acceptable option, so instead just taking the entire AvaServer machine offline is what I see as the best direction to go in.

I have no idea how long this will be for. It could be a week or two, it could be a month, or it could even end up being permanent. When the server does come back online, there will have to be another IP change (if not several) no matter what, that fact is unavoidable. No matter what the eventual outcome is, I'm sure this hurts me more then it does everyone else put together lol. But I still feel the need to offer my apologies for anyone that is somehow inconvenienced by this whole ordeal.

Hopefully AvaMods 5.o will get a chance to continue on... If not.. well this extension was unexpected anyway and bringing us to 12 years of operation still blows me away..

Doing some testing...

We're currently testing out a build of ReHLDS and Metamod-r on the AvaMods 5.o DoD server. There is a chance of there being issues and some things might not be working properly. If you come across any sort of problem during this period, please contact us or post on the forums about it so that we are aware of the issue. We can easily switch back to the official builds if needed, but so far I have not come across anything that did not seem to be working....

* update #1 *

The server was crashing after running for just a little while and I suspect it might be caused by the Metamod-r build, so I reverted back to the previous Metamod-p build and we'll see if that resolves the crashing.

AvaMods 5.o Beta -> Final Transition Complete...

I'm pretty sure the change over is all set now. I'm sure I will come across some things that I missed but so far everything is looking good. I didn't have any significant issues and I was pleasantly surprised how smooth everything went.

But as the previous news post mentioned, the server IP has changed so be sure to update your steam favorites.

The new IP is

You can also still use server.avamods.com to connect, but that may take some time for the DNS to update to the new IP address..

Enjoy AvaMods 5.o FINAL (and who knows, maybe one day there will be a 5.i update lol)

AvaMods 5.o Beta Status Update #2

So it has been over 6 months since the last post here and I haven't really done a thing with the server lol. I've been wondering why is the server still a 'beta'.... Well that won't be the case for much longer, as next weekend I plan on officially removing the 'beta' designation.

Not much will actually be changing as far as plugins or what not, but there is one major change coming. The IP for the server will be changing. I hate doing this but it has its benefits. I'll be switching the server over to a different modem, which is the cause of the IP change, but the server will get at least double the bandwidth now with the new modem (well its actually not new, I have 3 different modems on different accounts and this is one of my two older ones).

I need to go through a bunch of stuff and make a list of everywhere that has anything specific to the current IP that will need to be changed so hopefully the next week will give me enough time to do that prior to physically swapping out the modems.

At least the negative impact of an IP change should be minimal as server traffic is pretty much a joke these days.... I'll make another post when the server actually switches to the new IP...
